New Belgium Fat Tire


How classic is this beer? We’ve all had this one many, many times. Yet, I’ve somehow never reviewed it. Here we go! This amber features Pale, C-80, Munich, and Victory malts with Willamette, Goldings, and Target hops. Let’s give this flagship a try.

American Amber Ale. 5.2% ABV. 19 IBUs. Colorado.

Amber color. Shocking, right? Sticky lacing, which is nice to see.

Toasted nuts and biscuit on the nose. Floral hops. Hint of sweetness.

Light-medium body. Medium carbonation. Highly drinkable.

Floral hops followed by that biscuit and toast malt flavor. Slightly dusty on the finish with a hint of chocolate. Just enough bitterness to balance the little bit of sweetness.

Nothing wrong with this brew. 89 points.
